1. Wear it with a tank top
This is by far the easiest way to wear a vest. Pair it with a tank top and jeans for a casual look that is laidback but not boring. The vest acts as an eye-catching element and makes the look more trendy and fun. You can also pair your vest with a spaghetti top or even a tube top for a more daring look.
2. Oversize it
Oversized vests are super cute. There is something about an oversized vest that just makes your whole look so much more elegant and chic. Layer an oversized vest over a dress or some formal trousers for the ultimate fashionista look.
3. Fringe is In
